If you’re like me, and you just have to visit a bottle shop for one reason or another, you have to have a bit of scour of the shelves and see what’s there. I call it research. Someone very close to me, let’s call her my wife, disagrees. Anyway, depending on the bottle shop, there is always the usual suspects of course but sometimes, and more regularly these days, a label grabs my attention for any number of reasons. The label on this bottle would certainly grab my attention and not because it is attention grabbing. It just seems passively bright and friendly and I can’t help but be drawn to it. The contents did the same thing to me…and my wife. 😊
Aromatically, it doesn’t seem to want to offer up much but that didn’t bother me because I was more drawn to the lovely light coppery colour. In some ways, the palate was not what I expected. Yes there is some pear influence adding to soft red fruit characters as well yet it has texture, it has a nice touch of palate weight and it has a slight bit of acid on the finish which all adds up to a very enjoyable, refreshing wine. Good one!
